Amazing toy store with lots of history. Has everything including public washrooms. Was able to pick up Christmas gifts for my grandkids that are exlusive to only a few areas in the world. Great stop.

A really wonderful old-world toy store with a slide for children going from the ground floor to the basement. Really a must-see for any child visiting Zurich. Along with Pastorini toy store, Zurich is a fabulous toy paradise.

We ran into this store while strolling on the shopping mile in Zurich. Kids were thrilled(so were we). This is a great store for out of towners to browse toys and crafty items that may not available elsewhere. Also, restroom available which is rare to find.
